Tobi Amusan Wins Nigeria’s First-Ever World Athletics Championships Gold


Tobi Amusan won the women's 100m hurdles event in Eugene, Oregon, to become the first Nigerian athlete to win a gold medal at a World Athletics Championship.

Amusan crossed the finish line at Hayward Field in an astounding 12.06 seconds after breaking the world record in the semi-final with a time of 12.12.

Due to an unlawful tailwind of 2.5 meters per second, her winning time will not be recognized as a world record.

Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico had to settle for bronze as Britany Anderson of Jamaica took silver in 12.23 seconds.

In the semi-finals, Amusan broke the previous record, which had been held by American Kendra Harrison since 2016, with a time of 12.20 seconds.
